  • Teikningar Sigurðar málara birtust í þýðingu Dasents á Njálu (The Story of Burnt Njal, útg. Edmonston and Douglas, 1861 1.bindi, 2.bindi). Í formála segir hann m.a.:

The maps and plans have been engraved with great care and skill by Mr. Bartholomew; the first from the excellent map of Iceland based on the trigonometrical survey undertaken by the Danish government; the last, so far as the old Icelandic Hall is concerned, from the beautiful designs of Sigurður Guðmundsson, artist of Reykjavik, who is a living proof that the skill of hand which adorned the Hall at Hjarðarholt in the tenth century, still exists in Iceland at the present day, and whose thorough knowledge of the Sagas has enabled him to restore the dwellings of his forefathers.<ref>Dasent, George Webbe.
